Be careful with the buffer on the top deck, it is a long walk to go get a piece if it goes flying.
LOL, I will if it ever quits raining. I have everything from the cowl to the rear body shell ready to buff.

On the convertible, the rear belt molding covers the convertible top tack strip so even if we put it on, it will have to come off again. Both sides of that are bent where the previous owner did not know how to take it off. I am dreading them to be honest but they are convertible only pieces and I won't be finding replacements.

Used 3 DA up to 800 to get scratches out. Hand sanded from there. I can hand sand at the kitchen table and be upstairs with Barb. Unfortunately, for me, the quickest way is not what I can do.

I have brought the buffer upstairs and can put it on the rear deck to buff them.

Your right Brian.I would almost be willing to install this stuff "as is." No doubt 5000 would be more than good enough for a nice driver. I don't think I have any 5000 around here now though.

John long I do have a good start on my belt line trim. These pieces are straightened and sanded to 3000. Still need to be buffed though.

Thank you for being concerned. I am fine. Progress on the car is moving forward but at a pretty slow pace.

Steve has all the window regulators in and is installing the overflow tank for the radiator. I have the seat covered except for the hard parts and am back to polishing and straightening the upper belt line stainless so he can install the vent windows and door glass. The quarter window frames are still at the chrome plater's but he has the run tracks all blasted and epoxied as well as the regulators installed.

I have a lady that comes in to stay with Barb 3 days a week for 6 hours a day. I am blessed to have her but time for toys is still pretty scarce.
